According to a new survey, many young individuals worry that their posts on Facebook and Twitter can come back to haunt them someday.
The survey, which was backed by FindLaw.com, found that nearly 30% of social media users aged 18-34 say they have posted a photo or comment that they wanted to take back.
Participants said that some of those posts could potentially cause them their jobs or disqualify them from other opportunities. Also, 21-percent of the survey takers said that they have taken down a post because they feared consequences from their employers.
While many understand that social media sites have privacy settings, most users are still worrisome about their posts. But is there a basis for worrying about social media posts?
Well, according to Careerbuilder, more than 40-percent of employers refer to social media when reviewing prospective employees. And reports say that more and more companies are following this practice.
